Ergonomic Quiz for Arms, Elbows & Wrists

Did you know that musculoskeletal disorders, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis account for one-third of all work related injuries? Listen to this story and discover how you can ensure your workers are safe. 

We recently worked with a medical practice to replace older chairs because the workers using them were having back issues. Upon further investigation, the new chairs were a great help, but the bigger issue was the placement of their keyboards. They took this quiz and determined the need for adjustable keyboard trays with a mouse and gel wrist supports, mounted under their desks. The result was a great ergonomic set up (provided by Consolidated Office Systems) and best of all…some happy and comfortable workers.
